Printable Glock 19 Grip Template

So let's say you want to add a little extra friction between your hand and your Glock. When you actually search around the internet, the recurring theme is that people make their own template. But it seems like nobody has actually taken the time to create a printable, reusable template.

So I made one.

Save a few bucks, plus use any material you want! Skateboard grip tape, sports tape, rubber tape, duct tape... whatever!

Here's a preview (don't print this picture - see below for the printable PDF):

Link to printable version: http://gerryhernandez.com/glock/glock19GripTemplate.pdf (if someone could host a mirror, I'd appreciate it)

Printing tip: Make sure all scaling is turned off before printing. Look for options along the lines of "fit to page" and disable that before printing.

I hope this saves someone else some time. Enjoy

EDIT: if someone could help me get the download link working, that would be awesome...

I have no idea why I can't place that link in my original post. Anyway, glad you like it!

This was designed for a Gen 4 with the medium grip. I would assume that it fits well for the Gen 3. I'll make more as I get more Glocks, which will follow after I get more money. Doh!

I think a Glock 35 might be my next one. I keep looking at it and drooling.

Awesome idea, and glad someone has done it. Question though. Why in the world put grip tape on a G4 model? just curious.

I'm glad you asked. First of all, keep in mind that while making a grip, you're not limited to grip tape. But let's talk about why I did it, and the material I chose.

Realize that coarse grain skateboard grip tape (in my case, "Black Magic" brand) is designed to function both dry and wet, as well as both clean and dirty. My hands get really sweaty, and while it may look like the factory Gen 4 grip digs into your skin, it really doesn't, and especially with sweaty hands. Heck, it could even feel greasy under some circumstances. But with the grip tape, that's no longer a factor. I can definitely get a more stable grip with less slippage, especially with my support hand. The extra friction on my palm is where I feel the most advantage, but it transfers everywhere else quite nicely.

Other people might think that the Gen 4 bumps are too harsh, and may opt for a rubberized grip. Who knows. And some people, like myself, just like to tinker and mess with stuff sometimes.

Thanks! I hope other people would get inspired to do the same thing, or even improve my design and "pass it forward" one more step. There are plenty of other Glock frames to do this for, plus all of the back-strap sizes.

Share your pics, mods, and ideas! Keep it going!

Sorry for reviving a necro.

I was wondering if a template like this already existed for the G17?

Those finger grooves really pop out... hmm... I wonder if that template might give me the courage to try removing them by myself? Kinda like 'dremel-by-the-numbers'

@GerryH Any chance you still have the pdf of the glock 19 gen 4 grip template? The link isn't working for me for some reason. Thanks!

First off, Welcome! This template is for a Gen 4 19. As to the link, the original had a problem, but DJ Niner has a repaired link in his post. I checked it a minute ago, and it works fine.

Good Luck and good shooting.
